From an e-mail just sent out by EYA
, word that "Capitol Quarter
will accept reservations on our next 5 market rate
homes on Saturday May 12th, 2007 at 11:00 a.m. [...] Reservations will be accepted on a first come, first served basis beginning at 11:00 a.m on May 12th. [...] Please note that no reservations will be accepted before 11:00 a.m on Saturday May 12th, 2007, and this offering does not include any workforce homes, which will be released at a later date." And: "We anticipate an additional 5 market rate homes will be made available each month for the next several months." So, for those folks waiting to see additional movement at Capitol Quarter, it looks like they're kicking into gear. And note that the sales center is now back to being open seven days a week.

pages. If you want to receive these announcements directly from EYA, go to their Capitol Quarter web site

Today I saw for the first time new signs hung on the fence surrounding the firewood lot on the southwest corner of 1st and I Streets
, emblazoned with "DRI Development
/Office and Retail" (or some such). I have absolutely no information on this--this lot has been owned for quite some time by the Potomac Development Corporation, but I don't see any records as of yet in the online public records to indicate a sale has taken place, so perhaps it's a joint venture. Or not. I don't know. Anyway, I'll try to see what I can find out (whispers in my ear
always welcome!), and hopefully some light can be shed on perhaps ANOTHER project getting started in the North of M
section of Near Southeast, to go along with JPI's two residential towers
, ADC Builders' Square 699N
, Faison's Onyx on First
condos, and Opus East's 100 M
office building (and maybe
site, too?), and perhaps something on the Sunoco lot by Monument Realty.
